heard in new york, new workweek in washington, new twists and turns in the resignation of the cia director david petraeus. top members of congress spoke out on the sunday shows unhappy that they were the last to know about details that were brought to life about his relationship with h biographer paula broadwell. and we hear that the house spokesman eric cantor did know, and his spokesman said he got the information from a whistle-blower. our athena jones has more. >> reporter: as more facts emerge about the circumstances surrounding david petraeus' job, so do questions. >> i have so many questions. >> reporter: like who knew what when about complaint s that paula broadwell sent harassing e-mails to a woman close to petraeus. according to a u.s. official it was that probe that revealed an affair between petraeus and broadwell. james clapper learned of an investigation in a phone call from the fbi on election night. clapper told the white house wednesday according to a senior u.s. intelligence official, but it is unclear when the fbi probe began. >> the fbi director had the obligat
: that's right. this is a group of officials from the cia including the acting cia director, mr. clapper and others from the state department have been going around. they had a very long meeting on the house side for the house intelligence committee this morning. by the way, this is the one that general petraeus was supposed to be doing coming back after congress was gone and really giving them the details that they have about what happened in benghazi, why the intelligence community may have not had the correct initial information about what happened there and what they know now. that briefing on the senate side is going on as we speak. and as i mentioned, we're going to hear from the chairwoman in the ranking republican. what we do know is that they are seeing a video that was obtained from the consulate. it was a closed circuit video that intelligence officials are hoping will shed light on what really happened and why the information they had at the time may not be what it turned out to be in the end. >> dana, thanks very much. we'll have much more on this part of the story coming up
, not from the dni. second of all, it was obvious within 24 hours that the station chief from the cia had said that this was a terrorist attack. and she continued to tell the world through all the talk shows, that it was a, quote, spontaneous demonstration sparked by a video. that's not competence in my view. and the president is the one who is ultimately responsible. that is not an acceptable person, inmy view, to be secretary of state. >> president obama says it is important to find out exactly what happened there but it's outrageous for senator mccain or other republicans to go after miss rice, that it's the president who's responsible, that he should be the one if they want to point fingers or go after anyone. zoraida? >> dan lothian live in washington for us. thank you. >> okay. >>> new developments this morning in "the apprentice" sex scandal leading back to square one. we know the identity of the fbi agent who helped start the investigation that eventually led to the former cia director's resignation. his name is frederick humphries ii, 47 years old and a veteran investigator. also
as cia director. now john allen, top adviser in afghanistan, is being investigated for flirtatious e-mails he exchanged with kelley over a two-year period. >> kelley is pleading for privacy now even though she finds herself in the middle of a real-life soap and a here. we are hearing her voice now for the first time in a 911 call to tampa police, that was last weekend, she called to complain about the people outside her house citing diplomatic protection, which she doesn't have. listen to this. >> you know i don't know if by any chance, um, because i'm on in their council general, so i have inviolability, so they should not be able to cross my property. i don't know if you want to get technical, but because it's against the law to cross my property since this is now like you know it's inviable. >> let's start with jill, leon panetta delivered new comments on the scandal hours ago. is the defense department at the tip of the investigation and what's the latest here? >> well, we'll get to that vote of confidence by mr. panetta in a second, but really the main thing that seems to be now

of the woman at the center of the scandal that forced the resignation of cia director david petraeus. i'm wolf blitzer. you're in "the situation room." >>> we begin with the obama administration's latest attempt to explain the misleading information given out in the days after the september 11th attack on the u.s. consulate in benghazi, libya. four americans including the u.s. ambassador to libya died in what we now know was a terrorist attack. but that isn't what the u.s. ambassador to the united nations susan rice said when she went on national television five days after the attack. today rice is up on capitol hill. she's explaining what happened and some big-name republicans clearly are not very happy with her answers. our senior congressional correspondent dana bash is following what's become a pretty long day -- a tiring day for the u.s. ambassador to the u.n. what's the latest, dana? >> reporter: wolf, the three republican senators who had vowed to block susan rice from being secretary of state if the president nominates her had really softened the rhetoric in recent days. i'm told the r
, it was ambassador rice who asked for these meetings. she will be accompanied by acting cia director mike morel. what's interesting is that we've seen some of the harshest criticism has been sort of toned down as we heard there from senator john mccain. from threatening to block her nomination as possible secretary of state to a willingness to hear her out, senator john mccain seems to be dialing back his public opposition to ambassador susan rice. >> i think she deserves the ability and the opportunity to discipline herself and her position. >> another vocal critic, senator lindsey graham, is still expressing doubts about her but avoided answering whether he would stand in the way of a rice nomination. >> when she comes over, if she does, there will be a lot of questions asked of her about this event and others. >> whether this apparent new tone is a real shift in thinking prompted by political pressure or more nuance language, the white house is all ears. >> certainly saw those comments and appreciate them as the president has said and i and others have said. ambassador rice has done an excellent j
. the cause of that explosion is still under investigation. >>> now to the latest and former cia director david petraeus' sex scandal. mistress paula broadwell returning to her north carolina home. cameras were waiting as she and her husband pulled in yesterday. her husband scott told reporters he had no comment right now. meanwhile after petraeus' testimony before congress, a big battle is brewing over u.n. ambassador susan rice's declassified talking points on the attack in benghazi. specifically why the role of terrorism wasn't reflected in them. democratic senator dianne feinstein, the chairwoman of the senate intelligence committee, says she'll investigate why the terrorist role wasn't included. still in an appearance on nbc's meet the press, feinstein said she was sure the white house didn't change the language in those talking points. >> with the allegation that the white house changed those talking points, that is false. there's only one thing that was changed. and i checked into this. i believe it to be absolute fact. and that was the word counsel was changed to mission. that's t
general petraeus when he was running the cia and his involvement with it. it's ridiculous. ambassador rice made it clear in terms of where she got the talking points from. the republicans in the senate want to attack the white house, want to attack rice. they don't want her to be secretary of state. they don't want to say a word about the intelligence community. i say rice was right to fire back. they should push back. it should be just as aggressive in terms of laying out this is where we got the information from. and even condoleezza rice on fox news said, look, in this kind of situation, you get tons of information and it is always evolving and changing. >> so, caden, is roland right or is senator mccain right? is there more there there? >> i think roland is wrong. let's look at senator graham from south carolina also. if you know his history and senator graham's history, once they dig in, they're not going to quit. what they're looking for is the truth. they've asked for a special prosecutor. eric holder and his own appointees look at this. we have a history here. look. go back to scoo
gives an order at the cia. there's discussion, there's flack, people don't like this, and then he goes home to wash dishes. >> well, there's no doubt that returning to civilian life can be difficult for soldiers. "the washington post" had an interesting article on the perks four-star generals enjoy. this is from that article. quote, the commanders who lead the nation's military services enjoy an array of perks befitting a billionaire, including executive jets, palatial homes, drivers, security guards. their food is prepared by gourmet chefs. if they want music with their dinner parties, their staff can summon a spring quartet or a choir. he lost all that when he retired to become the cia director. with me now political science professor at hiram college and chief political correspondent for politic 365 jason johnson and republican strategist and cnn contributor anna navarro. good morning to both of you. >> good morning. >> good morning. >> first off, i'm not ignoring the fact that general petraeus spent years on the battlefield, that's serious. but when he lived life according to "the
suggesting the national intelligence director, the head of the cia, they were concocting a politically attuned story, if you will, for the u.s. ambassador to the u.n.? >> i don't know who was responsible for it. that is the thing that we are going to discover. >> they said they did it. they said it wasn't a white house decision. >> it would not be unheard up in the annals of the united states to write something to protect themselves from embarrassment. >> i want you to react to some of the assertions, the accusations that have been leveled at senator mccain, senator graham, that there's an element of sexism and even racism inner that opposition to susan rice. do you believe that? >> i know senator mccain. and i don't think he would go that low. susan rice, as i mentioned, is very qualified to hold this position if the president -- again, i don't want to prejudge what the president may or may not do with regards to susan rice. i think she has served with honor and distinction. and i'm not going to make this about anything other than if the president nominates her, i'm willing to stand b
of state, call up the director of the cia, get together with the relevant congressional oversight committee and say what happened, how do we fix it? let's make sure we can go better and not lose diplomats. >> if for some reason you did get another phone call -- you have gotten one before from the president of the united states, saying he would like you to serve as secretary of state. >> would you do it? >> i don't play the hypothetical game. we have moved on. my history has always spoken to putting my country first. and if i didn't, my two sons at the u.s. naval academy would never forgive me. the president will choose who he wa wants. and it serves no purpose playing the speculation game. >> that's interesting, who would you recommend for that sort of position? >> if you were obama, who would you pick? >> final question. >> it does no good to play the name game. >> you can dodge my question but not abby's. >> let's say this about the future. the future isn't afghanistan or iraq but how well prepared we are to meet the 21st century challenges of competitiveness. that will be economics, educ
